Frequently asked questions:



Last year we collected 7 tons of trash. We recycled 3 tons of metal and 22 tires. Lets beat that! New this year we will have one roll-off reserved for brush. Brush coupons will be available for loads that don't fit in our roll-off.

We walked Stuhr Park, Hawthorne school and 3 miles of streets collecting trash and cleaning utility poles of signs. There are 11 miles of streets in the Witherbee neighborhood. Can we get them all this year?

This cleanup is for private individuals of the Witherbee Neighborhood only. We will not accept items from businesses.

Recycle: Things you can do all year, get informed look in the Alltel Phone Book Community Pages 42-44 and see what you can put in your regular trash throughout the year.
